Kitsbow The Haskell V2 Short - Men's
Much as it pains one to admit, there's undoubtedly life beyond the trails, and while you can't always be in the saddle, you can (almost) always be in the Kitsbow Haskell Men's Shorts. They're rally-ready trail shorts that look good enough to wear out on a first (bike, or non-bike) date, with understated Kitsbow style that'll trick everyone into thinking you're just a regular person wearing regular shorts.
Made of nylon and Spandex, the Haskell moves with you whether you're cranking up leaf-covered climbs or playing some backyard lawn games, and it has a DWR coating to repel trailside mist and spilled beverages alike. It goes without saying that the shorts have been carefully designed to wick moisture and speed evaporation, too, so you stay cool under the pressure of awkward first-date questions and gut-churning descents like it's no big thing.

High quality, high price...worth it
I have long been on the search for "the mountain biking short". For me, the Kitsbow. Haskell fits the bill. The material and construction ooze thoughtfulness of design and superior materials. The shorts are surprising thick and heavy in a substantial way while maintaining stretch. They hit right at my knee (6'0") while standing and slide up above the knee while riding. The fit is fantastic and very modern. The legs taper ever so slightly without looking like skinny shorts for a clean trim look. I wish my casual cotton shorts fit this well. I operate under the buy fewer more quality items and use them until they are completely worn out. These are the only mtb shorts inown
Well worth the extra pennies!
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
The Haskell shorts are well worth the pennies. The fit is great and styling is perfect. Not your typical MTB style short. The legs are trim and hang just over your knee standing. While riding they rise just above your knee as to not interfere with pads. The material is stretchy and really comfortable riding. Compared to other shorts the fabric has a heavy durable feel but is quite breathable. The quality definitely justifies the price. I’ve worn these shorts biking but recently find myself wearing them every chance I get. Playing golf, taking the pup out for a walk, you name it. I pick these shorts from the stack first.
The fit is on point. I wear 32 jeans/34 dress pants and ordered a 34 in the Haskell short. The waist fits perfect with and without chamois. I also wear 34 in Troy Lee’s Skyline Race short and a 34 in Giro’s Truant short.
